You can also find out inbox sizes and the number of emails sent per day in this overview.

In the mailbox detail, you can manage the following settings:

  • New Mailbox or Mailbox address@domain.tld: If you are creating a new mailbox, enter its name here. You can also add aliases to make the mailbox work for multiple email addresses at once.
  • Password: Enter or generate (click the key icon) a strong and secure password.

While editing a mailbox, only enter a password if you want to change it. Otherwise, leave the fields blank.

  • Redirect: You can forward all incoming messages to another mailbox. To also delete the forwarded message, check the corresponding box.
  • Permissions: You can allow or block mailbox login, sending and delivery. You can also set a specific mailbox size and sending limits (leave blank to use server values).
  • Advanced Settings: You may set whether to use a separate SPAM folder, and allow Sending from any address within the service – this means that you will be able to send mail on behalf of this mailbox from other mailboxes within this web hosting. Under normal circumstances, you cannot send from the a@domain.tld mailbox with the From: b@domain.tld header. With this setting, you will allow other mailboxes to send mail from your email address.

Common Issues

Common problems when managing mailboxes include:

Unable to Log Into New Mailbox

Issue: We have created a new mailbox and it is not possible to log into it, even via WebMail.

Cause: Creating a new mailbox may take the server up to half an hour.

Solution: Wait at least half an hour and then try logging in again. If it doesn’t work, try changing the password.

No Mail in New Inbox

Issue: We set up new emailboxes on the hosting, but the mail does not go through.

Cause: The most common cause of mail not being delivered are incorrect or non-existent DNS MX records.

Solution: Make sure your DNS MX records are correctly directed to your hosting service.

Service Has No Mailboxes

Issue: There are no mailbox options available.

Cause: WebSite Free has no email services.

Solution: To use emails with your WebSite, upgrade, or create a separate Mailhosting service.


Question: How do I access my mailbox?
Answer: You can use our WebMail or any mail client via IMAP / SMTP.

Question: Can you send me my email password?
Answer: We do not have access to customers’ email passwords. Change your password instead.
